My husband (John), American, is recently retired from the IMF. I (Rosemary) am English and a retired Nursery School Director. We searched for 5 years for a Caribbean beachfront location to spend several months each year during our retirement. When we accidentally found the gem that is Akumal along the Riviera Maya in Mexico we knew we had found our second home.
Akumal is an exceptionally friendly, quiet little beach town, with fabulous snorkeling, offering coral reef and sea turtles right from the beautiful white sand and palm tree beach.
Mi Casa del Mar is an attractively designed building of 14 condo units on four levels. The common areas include a large shaded lobby, ocean-front infinity pool, lounge chairs, shaded gazebo and outside shower. The condo is about a 5 minute walk from Akumal village and the beautiful Akumal Bay. It is close enough to enjoy the powder white beach and numerous turtles of the bay and the delicacies of the local restaurants, yet far enough away to enjoy the quiet and peacefulness of being off the beaten track. Walking 5 minutes in the other direction takes you to the picturesque Half Moon Bay and other restaurants and gift shops. About a 20 minute walk from the condo is Yalku Lagoon where for a small fee you can snorkel in the calm, clear waters of the lagoon with hundreds of tropical fish.
